1  A gift for my sister... in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by micie66 on: July 21, 2009 01:57:17 PM
This originally started out as a purse for me but I am now giving it to my sister. She lives in Pittsburgh so this is the perfect color combo for any Steel City Sports fan!!

This was listed as the "1 hour bag" but it took me longer, like 3 hours. I made a few errors and I added the flap closure, it has a magnet there. I also had to draw out my own pattern as the tute only showed hers, not a printable one. In the end I like this design and will make another one for me. Oh yeah, it has batting or wadding inside to give it shape. I still have to tack down the straps a bit more on the inside. There are fabric covered buttons on the sides where the straps are.

Oh yeah, C & C welcomed!!!

2  I made a doll quilt! in Quilting: Completed Projects by micie66 on: July 18, 2009 07:30:07 AM
I finally attempted to make a quilt and I am pleased with the results. Next time I want to try a Chinese coin pattern, I think that is what it's called.

This was the doll quilt from Sew Mama Sew and a quilt-a-long that was posted awhile back. If anyone needs a link, I'll post that.

C & C welcome.

3  Purses from skirts... in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by micie66 on: April 30, 2009 04:56:19 PM
I saw this idea on Whipup.net and thought I could try it out. I used little girls' mini-skirts and an old vintage sheet. The hardest part was sewing over the button areas on both of these. But they were fun.

4  A few of my bags....messengers and totes (IMG heavy) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by micie66 on: April 30, 2009 04:46:22 PM
Trying to post some pictures of my bags. I have been sewing since Oct. 2008 and these are some of what I have made and sold.
This one was for a guy, my first "man" bag! lol...

This one was for a classmate of my son's. She picked her fabrics and I must say I loved the bright colors. I made the pattern for these two bags.

I love the fabric on this one. It's a gift.

This is a variation of two patterns that I put together to make something I liked.

Two more bags. The one on the right is a small Jordy and is now my granddaughter's purse. She is only 2!
 The one of the left is a fun tote I made for a friend.
